Got Snow gear? Meant to snow down to 2,000. I live in upper Yucaipa (about a mile from Mill Creek Ranger Station), suns out but, the temps are COLD. S.G.Wilderness will no doubt get snow we reports hold true.
Call the Ranger Station desk and ask about the gate? Lower parking lot should be opened if snow plows clear road. Just as guess on that.

Is it a 1 day or 2 day? V. Creek is a great hike! Great training for Mt. Whitney if that’s in your future. Lots of elevation gain right from the start. Water at Vivian Creek when you reach the wilderness entry sign, Halfway… might have to bushwhack up the creek bed to find it. High Creek always has agua (follow creek bed to the spring. Preferred place to camp by most for an overnighter. Right out of H.Creek your pushing up some high elevation numbers to the summit.
Night temps are probably at or close to freezing this time of the year. Be prepared! Day hike is a real kick in the butt, start early if this is your plan with the sun setting at 4:45-500pm it’ll be dark when your heading out.
Hope this helps,

Great trail, lots of elevation gain right at the start. Super training trail for Mt. Whitney attempt. Water is always found at High Creek camp even during the driest of years.
